1 There are difficulties in translating «the fact» because it sometimes refers to the action of a person and sometimes more generally to the fact. We have therefore translated it differently depending on the context.2The general opinion. The French use «her» (she) in this context because of the reference to the game. Throughout the translation, we follow the convention of the English statutes and use the masculine singular of personal and possessive pronouns (which can be read that they refer to both the feminine or the casstrators), instead of «him/her», 3If «solemn» refers to a certain category of contracts requiring formalities, «solemn contracts»: see below, art. 1172 – 1173.4 «Custom contract» translates as an over-the-counter contract, which has the meaning of a contract in which the parties meet in an amicable agreement. 5 «Standard Form Contract» translates membership contract, literally «a contract to which one sticks» and whose conclusion therefore contains little or no choice.6 «Performance Act» translates in all cases Presstation, except in the compound phrase «service delivery» translated as «service delivery.» See also note 10 of art. 1127-1. 7The «general law» (translated as «common law») refers here to the general law of non-contractual liability for misconduct Art 1240 – 1241, provided the parties have entered into contractual agreements during the negotiations. 8The European Parliament and Council Directive 2000/31/EC of 8 June 2000 on certain legal aspects of the information society`s services, in particular e-commerce, in the internal market (hereafter the e-commerce directive) on certain legal aspects of information society services, in particular e-commerce, in the arts9-11. If the text of the order corresponds to the wording or terminology of the French version of the directive, we have used the equivalent in the English version of the directive.9″Professional» (i.e.
as an adjective) refers to a company as well as to a profession in the usual English sense.10 «Service service» is the term in which we do not translate «Service» as «performance act».
